Review:

"[Firearms] is one of the best visual overviews available of the historical development of firearms, with brilliant photography and an emphasis on artistic as well as technological achievements." — Library Journal

"Firearms is a coffee-table book guaranteed to provide several evenings' worth of entertaining reading to any gun or history enthusiast in search of a general overview of firearms development." — The Armchair General magazine

"Beginning historical novelists who don't know much about firearms in their chosen era will find an excellent introduction in this book. It offers worldwide coverage, not just Western arms, and true to DK's tradition, provides excellent and detailed color photographs of examples of weapons over the centuries." — Historical Novel Society

"[A] complete historical overview illustrated with excellent photography." — American Gunsmith
